The 2016 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) has been the premier international forum for disseminating recent advances in the field of systems simulation for almost 50 years. The longest-running conference devoted to simulation as a discipline, this year’s WSC will be held on Dec. 11-14 at the Crystal Gateway in Arlington, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C. The theme for WSC 2016 is “Simulating Complex Service Systems.”

WSC is designed for professionals and academics from all backgrounds and across a broad range of interests. Academic tracks include analysis methodology, modeling methodology, simulation optimization, agent-based simulation and hybrid simulations. Applied uses of simulation include social and behavioral simulation, defense and security, modeling and analysis of semiconductor manufacturing, healthcare applications, logistics, manufacturing applications, networks and communications, project management and construction, environmental and sustainability applications, and general applications. Additionally, WSC features introductory and advanced tutorials, simulation education, case studies, Ph.D. colloquia, poster sessions, an extensive group of exhibitors and vendor tutorials. Along with the lineup of tracks and speakers, WSC 2016 will also have a special cross-fertilization track.

WSC 2016 is sponsored by technical co-sponsors ACM/SIGSIM, ASA, ASIM, IEEE/SMC and NIST, along with IIE, INFORMS-SIM and SCS.
